- Smart safety net and collector
- Can be used throughout the harvest season
- For apple trees, plum trees, etc.
The Fruit Collector is a smart harvesting net that you tie and stretch around the trunk of the fruit tree. The harvest net catches the falling fruit, which lands softly and rolls out to the edges of the harvest net where the fruit is easily collected.
Soft landing for the fallen fruit
The harvest net sits slightly elevated from the ground and acts as a soft safety net for the fruit that falls from the tree. The soft landing is gentle on the fruit, which is spared unnecessary fall injuries. In addition, the harvest net protects against soil moisture, dirt, crawling insects, worms and slugs as the fruit is not lying directly on the ground.
The many advantages of the harvest net make the fruit keep its shape longer. The amount of fruit that can be used increases and you don't have to throw as much rotten fallen fruit on the compost heap.
Makes harvesting more efficient
When it's time to harvest the fruit, stretch the harvest net under the fruit tree. The ripe fruit can then be harvested quickly by shaking the fruit from the top branches. The fruit lands softly in the net and can be collected quickly.
Catches the fallen fruit when you're not there
The harvest net catches the fallen fruit that blows down even when you're not there. It's smart to use at your summer cottage and when you're away, so you can easily pick up the fruit that has fallen while you're away.
Suitable for many different types of fruit trees
The harvesting net is highly adaptable and can be used under apple trees, plum trees, pear trees and cherry trees, among others. The harvest net is easy to dismantle and move to another fruit tree. Smart when you have different fruit trees that are harvested in different periods.
Can remain throughout the harvest season
The harvest net can be stretched around the tree throughout the harvest season. The net allows water and air to pass through, allowing the lawn to water and breathe. When the harvest season is over, dismantle the net and store it in the storeroom for the next season.
Available in three sizes
The harvesting net is available in three different sizes. All sizes are flexible when it comes to the circumference of the fruit tree trunk as the net is attached with both string and Velcro. It does not matter if the trunk is narrower or if it is a slightly thicker trunk so that there is a small opening in the middle. Choose the harvesting net that best suits your fruit tree and your surroundings:
